Have a business idea? Looking for seed funding to help you get started?Get Seededprovides UConn students across all schools the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to a live virtual audience who then votes on which ideas are funded. Students that are selected to pitch have an opportunity to earn up to $1,000 in seed funding for their idea as well as support from other students who may be interested in joining their business venture.
Don’t have an idea yet? Not ready to pitch? Just want to watch other students pitch? Get Seeded pitch nights are open to the public and are a great way to network and connect!
Here’s how it works:
Interested students canapply to pitchan idea at one of our “Shark Tank style” pitch nights
Selected participants will then pitch their idea for 5 minutes at one of our virtual pitch nights to members of the audience
At the end of the night, the audience votes for their favorite ideas
The top 3 teams of the night will win $1,000, $750 and $500 respectively, in non-dilutive seed funding towards their new business venture or idea!
In April, the top five teams from our pitch nights are invited to pitch at Demo Day, where teams can win up to $5,000 in seed funding!
